    5.99 for Smuttynose Baltic Porter

    6.99 for Port Old Viscosity

    I love both those beer and having that cheap is even better!

    Sierra Celebration...$7.49 a sixer last season (I still can't believe such a quality, drinkable beer was so cheap)
    Prima Pils...$7.99
    Weihenstephaner (original, pilsener, or hefeweizen)...all $7.99

    These are my cheap "go-to's."

    (*Prices are for northern VA).

  11. Pretty much all the Narragansett beers. They come in 16 oz cans and Ive never seen a sixer for more than 7.99.

    My avatar - Drifter Pale ale, $6.99 for a six pack of one of the best and most unique pale ales available. This and a few of the Sierra Nevada 6 packs are the best values in beer.

    PBR. Certainly got cheap going for it.

    I got Sucks for less than $10 for a sixer. Very tasty for that price point.

    Summit Saga at $11.99 for a 12 pack is awesome.

    Forgot about Sucks...if you ever come over the border in VA, it's still readily available for $8.49.

    Torpedo at $12 - $13 a 12 pack wins the "cheap" prize for me.
  24. Long Trail Double Bag... $32 / case and 7+ % ABV, the case should last a while.

    Summit Saga
    SN sixers
    Lagunitas sixers

    Those are the ones on my short list

  27. Stockyard is on point! Also the Mission St. Anniversary ale came out recently and it should still be in stores, I hope so anyway because I need to get more. $3.50/bomber you can't go wrong.
  28. That's easy: Zywiec Porter. I think it was $2.49 for 16 or so ounces (when I was in Brooklyn) and it's a 9.5% beer; and an awesome example of a baltic porter.
  29. haven't seen this thread for at least...oh...two months?

    Cheap is a relative term, but Sucks is $7.99 at my local store. Best value in the whole store, IMO.

    Even though this exact same thread pops up every 10 days or so, I still enjoy browsing just to see everyone's definition of "cheap". $6.99 for a bomber equates to a $22.87 6-pack. In my world, that's not cheap.

  35. Red Racer 6 packs for $16, seems like a lot but that's pretty cheap for a great IPA in Canada!

    Cheapest I've ever seen Pliny is $4.49 per 16 oz bottle. Your number does not equate
